Can someone please explain to me what the appeal of this stupid show is
I have no idea why adult men call themselves bronies and follow the show the way I'd follow Battlestar Galactica. As a parent, I can tell you that I like my daughter watching it way more than when she was into Dora the Explorer *shudder* because at least in MLP the characters don't have to shout every single line or run around asking stupid questions.
Heck, any tv show that can turn a unicorn into a gatling gun deserves a second look. (Not even joking) I think the show is cute, and I don't object to any of the content, and occasionally there's a bit of humor in it that goes over the little kids' heads but adults will catch.
For example: In one episode, a pair of horses (married) have twins. One is a unicorn, one is a pegasus. When asked about it, the father says something like "Well she's got a relative who's a unicorn and there's a pegasus in my family... That makes sense.... right....?" O_o Whoa. YEah, that joke is definitely not for the kiddies...
But that's as far as I go with it. As for the bronies... you'll have to ask them what they see in it that makes them want to wear boxer shorts with MLP on them.
(Yes, you can actually buy adult mens' boxers with My Little Pony on them. Again, not even joking.)
